Nintendo has announced it will drop the price of its Nintendo 3DS portable gaming console down to $169 from the $249.99 suggested launch price. Bad sales are most likely the reason why Nintendo has slashed the price of the 3DS in hopes a more affordable price will attract buyers. The new $169 priced Nintendo 3DS will be available on August 12. If that wasn't enough, current Nintendo 3DS owners will be rewarded with 20 free NES and Game Boy Advance games downloadable from the Nintendo eShop starting September 1st.
